3 Zipline Tours You Can't Miss While in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a land blessed with a natural beauty that is unmatched in the region. Ecosystems here are visually exquisite for both locals and foreigners, which has made the country an international ecotourism pioneer. Among the major activities intended for adventure lovers seeking new knowledge and experiences is the ziplining tour. If you’re looking to soar over spectacular natural environments, Costa Rica is the place you’ve always dreamed of. Here are three great ziplining tours available in Costa Rica.

The dream of the bold: Guanacaste

This beautiful province is home to one of the most appealing experiences for globetrotters. Guanacaste, the birth place of the longest double-wire zipline in Central America and the world’s fifth longest ziplining tour: the “Superman.”

Double wire means you get to enjoy the ride alongside a loved one for an even more memorable experience. This adventure includes highly trained staff and the latest safety equipment for a truly enjoyable experience.

One of a kind: Monteverde

Described by National Geographic as “the crown jewel of cloud forests”, Monteverde is a mandatory stop. It is considered one of the 7 wonders of Puntarenas, and this province is a star in Costa Rican ecotourism. Monteverde does not provide the fastest or highest zipline. Here the grand attraction is not the zipline itself but rather the surrounding environment.

Your zipline ride will show you authentic cloud forest fauna and, if you’re lucky, you’ll spot a resplendent quetzal–a strange bird with multicolored, mesmerizing plumage.

However, we can’t talk about natural wonders without talking about La Fortuna, San Carlos.

Heaven among us: Arenal

Arenal Volcano is among the most popular tourist destinations in Costa Rica. And how could it not be? There are countless ecosystems and species surrounding it: tropical forests, waterfalls, the country’s largest lake... Just to name a few. This magical place is unquestionably rich in flora and fauna. And you get to witness this, from a privileged spot in Mistico Park’s ziplines. Do you dream of visiting unexplored worlds? Because this zipline ride sure feels like an other-worldly experience.

The Spider Monkey Canyon tour is the best choice combining adrenaline and adventure. It will take you on a walk on majestic hanging bridges, before diving into our refreshing ponds, to later rappel down the Arenal river canyon walls, and finally zipline to fly through the forest. The entire family will love the views and thrills of this ride.

Unforgettable thrill and adventure

Descending rocky canyon walls to then zipline among sublime biodiversity in Mistico Park in La Fortuna make it the most comprehensive option for adventurous families.
